What documents will I need to travel?

Travel Documents

Before embarking on your cruise, it is essential to take some time to acquaint yourself with the necessary travel documents required before boarding the ship. Government regulations and policies dictate the requirements described below, which are subject to change at any time without prior notice. To learn about the current passport requirements, please visit here.

It is your sole responsibility to identify and procure all required travel documents and keep them on hand at the pier when needed. These documents may include valid travel documents such as passports, visas, inoculation certificates, and family legal documents that are essential for both boarding and re-entry into the United States and other countries.

If you are unable to provide the necessary documentation, you may be prevented from boarding your flight or ship, or from entering a country, and you may face penalties. No refunds will be issued to those who fail to bring the appropriate documentation.

Required travel documents for International Sailings


A valid passport is required for travel. Ensure there are sufficient blank visa pages within the passport for visa stamps.

Visa requirements are the sole responsibility of the traveler. Redwood Travel Partners and Dave Koz and Friends at Sea do not advise on visa requirements. It is your sole responsibility to obtain and have available the proper travel documents necessary for your travel, including all associated costs related to obtaining your travel documents.
